I'm Jess | Cat Sitting in Buffalo, NY

Hi everyone! My name is Jess and I've been an avid animal lover my entire life. I currently have 4 rescued cats of my own, as well as 2 rescue dogs and a mess of lizards (me and my fiance rescue & breed reptiles!) I know when I go out of town, my biggest stress is finding someone I trust to care for my little zoo... That's why I want to help others enjoy their time away from home without the stress of worrying about their kitties! I will treat your kitties with all of the love and care I give my own. I am patient, gentle, and understanding with every cat I meet and want to make sure they are comfortable and not overwhelmed. If you have a scared or nervous kitty, I will make sure to be calm and patient with them to make sure they feel comfortable during my visit. I am currently a volunteer at the SPCA feeding the baby birds in the Wildlife department so being ...

Learn More About Jess

What do you enjoy most about cat sitting?

Proving the peace and mind to the cat parents. I know I've always struggled to leave my cats so knowing I can give that relief to someone else is invaluable. And spending time with the kitties is a huge bonus of course!

Do you have kitties yourself? What are their names?

Yes! I have 4 - Jemma, Moose, Casper, and Frodo. They are all best friends!

How do you ensure the safety & security of the cats and the home while cat sitting?

I always make sure doors are closed before walking into ensure no one can escape. I never open windows and ensure all doors are locked when I leave.

Jess has taken care of our three cats multiple times and has been excellent every time! Our oldest (and most sociable) loves her and our shier cats are trustworthy of her.

The Meowtel Promise & Satisfaction Guarantee

We are proud to provide each of our independently-contracted Meowtel cat sitters with the full benefits of our Meowtel Promise on eligible reservations. For reservations where each visit is at or above $20 and paid for through Meowtel, your cat(s) will automatically be covered under our insurance policy in the event that things don't go as planned.

Frequently Asked Questions

will vary based on the pet sitter's experience and expertise, but the average price for a cat sitter is $30.00. Prices will also depend on how long your cat needs company for, whether that be a drop-in visit or overnight stay in your home. Meowtel sitters offer 20, 45, and 60-minute drop-in visits that allow for fully tailored care for your kitties. Your caregiver may also need to charge a little more if they have to travel far, so we'll match you with the best options which are close by.

Every Meowtel cat sitter has been thoroughly vetted, background-checked, and is insured through Meowtel on eligible reservations via our Meowtel Promise. To ensure total peace of mind while you're away, every Meowtel reservation comes with a free Meet & Greet so you (and your kitties!) can have full confidence in your sitter before you leave.

Cats are territorial animals and don't do well in new environments. The presence of other cats, dogs, and even birds in kennels or animal hotels cause an immense amount of stress for your kitties. This is why Meowtel was created, so tailored in-home care is brought to you.

We recommend that you book daily visits with your sitter to keep your cats in their routine and to help minimize feline anxiety while you're away.

Each Meowtel cat sitting visit will include the whole 9 yards: feeding, refreshing the water bowls, litter box scooping, tidying up, medications, updates with photos, lots of playtime, as well as any special requests you may have. We know every kitty is different and that's why we offer tailored, in-home services since cats don't do well outside their own homes. Plus, every reservation comes with a free Meet & Greet so you can meet your sitter before you leave to ensure it will be a purrfect fit.
